Implementation
Implementation is the realization of an application, or execution of a plan, idea, model, design, specification, standard, algorithm, or policy.

Algorithm
In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm Listen/ˈælɡərɪðəm/ (originating from al-Khwārizmī, the famous mathematician Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī) is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and automated reasoning. More precisely, an algorithm is an effective method expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function.

C (programming language)
C is a general-purpose computer programming language developed between 1969 and 1973 by Dennis Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratories for use with the Unix operating system. Although C was designed for implementing system software, it is also widely used for developing portable application software. C is one of the most widely used programming languages of all time and there are very few computer architectures for which a C compiler does not exist.

Pointer analysis
In computer science pointer analysis, or points-to analysis, is a static code analysis technique that establishes which pointers, or heap references, can point to which variables or storage locations. It is often a component of more complex analyses such as escape analysis. A generalization of pointer analysis is shape analysis.

Aliasing
In signal processing and related disciplines, aliasing refers to an effect that causes different signals to become indistinguishable (or aliases of one another) when sampled. It also refers to the distortion or artifact that results when the signal reconstructed from samples is different from the original continuous signal.

Transitive closure
In mathematics, the transitive closure of a binary relation R on a set X is the transitive relation R on set X such that R contains R and R is minimal . If the binary relation itself is transitive, then the transitive closure is that same binary relation; otherwise, the transitive closure is a different relation.

Design
Design as a noun informally refers to a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system while "to design" (verb) refers to making this plan. No generally-accepted definition of "design" exists, and the term has different connotations in different fields. However, one can also design by directly constructing an object. More formally design has been defined as follows.

Open source
In production and development, open source is a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details. Before the phrase open source became widely adopted, developers and producers used a variety of phrases to describe the concept; open source gained hold with the rise of the Internet, and the attendant need for massive retooling of the computing source code.
